PICS: Paris Authorities Begin Destroying Migrant Camps after Calais Closure:

Migrant slums on the streets of Paris are growing following the decision to close the Calais ‘jungle’ camp, forcing authorities to start clearing the areas.

Demolition workers moved into the French capital to clear the streets on Monday, supported by riot police, with some sources estimating up to 3,000 people had set up camp near the Stalingrad Metro station.

“This is an ongoing operation,” a local official said. “The first priority is to determine how many migrants are eligible to go to reception centres and some tents are already being removed from the streets. What is certain us that this entire camp will be gone within days.”

Hundreds of Migrants Pitch Tents on Paris Streets as Calais Camp Shuts:

(REUTERS) – The number of migrants sleeping rough on the streets of Paris has risen by at least a third since the start of the week when the “Jungle” shanty town in Calais was evacuated, officials said on Friday.

Along the bustling boulevards and a canal in a northeastern corner of Paris, hundreds of tents have been pitched by migrants – mostly Africans who say they are from Sudan – with cardboard on the ground to try and insulate them from the autumn chill.

While the presence of migrants there is not new, it has grown substantially this week, Colombe Brossel, Paris deputy mayor in charge of security issues, told Reuters. Continue reading »

Lily Allen: People Who Question Age of ‘Child Migrants’ Are Like Nazis:

People who express scepticism over the age of supposed “child migrants” entering the UK are like Hitler and the Nazis, Lily Allen has said.

The singer claimed that Brits were being manipulated against migrants in the same way Germans were taught to hate Jews by the Nazis, and accusing the Home Office of colluding in this by deliberately letting the press publish photographs of old-looking “child refugees”. Continue reading »

Five Men Gang-Rape Women During Calais Camp Clearance:

A young woman was gang-raped by five men amid the destruction of the Calais Jungle camp, French prosecutors have revealed.

The Ethiopian was attacked on Tuesday morning as volunteers and police were clearing the Calais slum in preparation for the attempt to resettle its inhabitants in asylum centres across France.

The victim has been examined by a forensic doctor but had difficulty communicating the details of the attack, as she only speaks an Ethiopian dialect. A source told reporters that the woman will stay in Calais until a translator can be found. Continue reading »

France Begins to Clear ‘Jungle’ Migrant Camp Outside Calais:

CALAIS, France — The French government began its long-awaited clearing of the sprawling migrant camp outside the city of Calais on Monday morning, the start of its effort to once and for all dismantle an eyesore that has become an emblem of the country’s — and Europe’s — struggle to get a handle on the migration crisis.

Lines of migrants stretched for a mile in the cold along the routes leading out of the “Jungle,” as the camp is known, to be processed in a giant hangar. Buses waited along a side road to take them to dozens of reception centers scattered throughout France. Each migrant will have to choose between two regions, except for the island of Corsica and the Île-de-France region, which includes Paris.

Sixty buses, each carrying 50 migrants, were scheduled to depart the camp today; 45 tomorrow; and 40 on Wednesday. On Tuesday, the demolition of the camp is scheduled to begin. About 1,250 French police officers were assembled at the camp. The authorities are concerned about the possibility of clashes with militant activists, though not with migrants.

French Mayor Warns Townsfolk: Migrants Are Coming!:

The mayor of a French town has placed posters around his town warning locals that the state plans to “impose” migrants on them. He has called for a referendum on whether to accept migrants from the Jungle camp outside Calais when the camp is dismantled.

Robert Ménard, the mayor of the ancient town of Beziers in Languedoc has had the posters placed in prominent positions around town.

Topped and tailed with the slogan “Migrants in our town centre!”, the posters feature a picture of migrant men, some wearing hoodies, congregating outside a cathedral. Text across the image reads: “The state is imposing them on us. That’s it, they’re coming…” Continue reading »

Eritrean Migrant Killed on Calais Road Was Attacking Car that Hit Him, Says Witness:

The Eritrean migrant killed on the road near Calais at the weekend was attacking the car that hit him, and may have been holding a weapon, it has emerged.

The father of the British man driving the car which struck the migrant on Sunday night has spoken out about the incident, describing a terrifying ordeal which he said had left both him and his son traumatised.

The pair were headed towards the Eurostar terminal at about 8.30pm on Sunday night when a group of around 50 migrants who were attempting to block the road turned on their vehicle.

“It was unbelievably terrifying,” Nafthali Reichman, a jeweller from Stamford Hill in North London, told the Daily Mail.

“My son is traumatised and so am I. It happened in a split second. It was dark and suddenly someone jumped on to our car. Continue reading »

Couple Warn Drivers to Avoid Calais Following Terrifying Attack by Masked Migrants:

A husband and wife from Kent have warned others not to travel through Calais after their car was recently set upon by around 40 migrants wearing hoodies and with their faces covered. The migrants banged on the car, leaving the couple shaken, but border force officers refused to take action.

Paul and Lisa Burton, landlord and lady of the George Inn in Newnham, Kent, often take elderly customers on a day trip to Ypres, but have vowed not to do so anymore following the attack on their vehicle.

The incident occurred on the main road a mile from the port of Calais, close to the Jungle migrant camp, which is home to around 9,000 migrants – all trying to get into the UK. The camp is due for demolition in the next few weeks. Continue reading »

Decorated French General Stripped of Military Privileges For Involvement in PEGIDA Protest:

A decorated and highly regarded French General has been stripped of his office due to his involvement in a proscribed protest organised by Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) earlier this year.

General Christian Piquemal, 75, a former paratrooper and commander of the French Foreign Legion, was fined €500 in May this year for taking part in a PEGIDA demonstration in Calais the previous February. The protest had come at a time of heightened tensions between the people of Calais and migrants living in the nearby Jungle camp, which had led to a ban on demonstrations in the town.

Inside France’s “The Jungle” Migrant Camp:

Submitted by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,

  • In 2001 alone, 54,000 people “attacked” the Channel Tunnel terminal in Calais and 5,000 had gotten through.
  • Migrants evicted from Calais moved to Paris and established a massive squatter camp at the Jardins d’Eole, a public park near the Gare du Nord station, from where high-speed Eurostar trains travel to and arrive from London. The area has become a magnet for human traffickers who charge migrants thousands of euros for fake travel documents, for passage to London.
  • The President of the Alpes-Maritimes region, Eric Ciotti, criticized the government’s “irresponsible” plan to relocate migrants in Calais to other parts of France. He said the plan would “proliferate a multitude of small Calais, genuine areas of lawlessness that exacerbate lasting tensions throughout the country.”
  • A whistleblower reported that volunteer aid workers at “The Jungle” were forging sexual relationships with migrants, including children. “Female volunteers having sex enforces the view (that many have) that volunteers are here for sex,” he said.

French President François Hollande has vowed “definitively, entirely and rapidly” to dismantle “The Jungle,” a squalid migrant camp in the northern port town of Calais, by the end of this year. Continue reading »

Volunteers in the Calais Jungle have been accused of sexually exploiting refugees and even child migrants.

The Independent has discovered a serious row has broken out among some unpaid charity workers at the camp in northern France, with some believing forging sexual relationships with adult refugees is natural in such circumstances, while others say it breaches all usual codes of conduct.

One man who raised the alarm was later subjected to a barrage of online abuse. Continue reading »

Tensions Rise As French Citizens Blockade Calais Port Calling For “Demolition” Of Migrant “Jungle” Camp:

French farmers, truckers and police have all united in a major protest in Calais, France calling on President Hollande to announce specific plans for the demolition of the “Jungle” camp which houses around 7,000-9,000 refugees primarily from Northern Africa and the Middle East.  Farmers and truckers have parked their trucks and tractors on major freeways effectively creating a blockade of the Calais port. 

Accorded to RT, violent crime within the camp has been on the rise and presents an increased danger to Calais residents.  Reports have surfaced of some migrants attacking passing motorists, throwing various objects at windscreens and cutting trees in an attempt to hijack vehicles.  There have also been reports of migrants threatening drivers with chainsaws and machetes. 

One local Calais resident described the chaos to The New Observer as follows:

“They turn up in the center of the town, numbering 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, all over the place. They smash cars with iron bars. They assault people; they even assault children. They rob and they rape. What we endure is unimaginable. Continue reading »
